Clinical, Co-op and Internship Opportunities

In each of the past two years, over 90% of Health Professions and 100% of our Nursing graduates were successfully placed in career-related employment or entered graduate school within six months of graduation.

Real Deal

For those looking for extensive opportunities, University of Detroit Mercy provides some of the best. In all of our Health Professions programs, clinical, co-op and internship experiences (non-nursing) not only abound but are integral components of each program's curriculum.

Through these real opportunities, our students gain valuable practical experience on-the-job—along with full college creditwhile participating health care professionals (and their sponsoring institutions and hospitals) receive quality assistance from well-educated, highly motivated student practitioners.


We're not just here to give you a great education, we're here to help you launch a successful professional career. That's why we put so much emphasis on working with you to develop a career plan, helping your find the optimum co-op opportunities, and assisting you in landing your first professional career position after graduation.

Our Career Education Center is designed to provide you with a comprehensive approach to career development and the professional world of work. This developmental process begins with freshman workshops and continues throughout the entire academic program in order to maximize your individual career preparation.

Furthermore, the clinical experience gained by Health Professions students contributes significantly to the high rate of job placement among our graduates.
